Suffering from SAD?
- Do you feel extremely sleepy and tired during the winter?
- Do you feel depressed or eat more when the seasons change?
You may have the condition known as Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD, also known as “winter depression.” SAD is not the same as the “winter blues” many people experience when snow starts falling down. SAD occurs year after year, and its effects are more serious; for instance, SAD patients may extend their sleep by as much as four or more hours each day.
The great news is that there are many ways to treat SAD. One of the best treatments technology has to offer today is called light therapy or phototherapy. It's currently the most recommended form of treatment for SAD, because it's very easy, effective, and you can do it anytime at home.
Brighten Up Your Days with Light Therapy
Sunny days are fun because bright light has positive effects on the human body. As winter arrives, the days become shorter and nights become longer, giving your body less exposure to daylight. When you're affected by SAD, you lose your synchronization with the environment, so you tumble down the rocky road to depression.
The best way to cure this kind of depression is by exposing yourself to more light. Don't worry though, because you don't have to go chasing after the sun to shake your blues away. Scientists have developed lamps that go to the root of the problem and solve it. These lamps are specially designed to alter your “biological clock,” causing your body to shift from night mode to day mode. The results are more energy for your body, a clearer head, and a happier mood!
Lamps to Shake Away the Blues
Lamps or light boxes are completely safe, and many of them are even stylish and portable. Don't just use any kind of lamp to treat your condition, though. Experts have developed different lamps for your needs as a patient. The four kinds of lamps are:
